We may from time to time, in our sole and absolute discretion, revise all or any portion of this Agreement and/or impose additional rules, regulations, or restrictions not expressly stated in this Agreement pertaining to the use of the Service. Notice of any such changes will be considered given and effective immediately upon our posting of such modifications or revised Agreement on the Website www.dynamixcloud.com/legal, or such other Website designated by us from time to time (“our site”).

Upon posting of a new or revised Agreement, the new or revised Agreement shall supersede the previously agreed to form(s) of Agreement.
Your continued use of the Services following our posting of any modifications constitutes your acceptance of the modifications. If you do not agree to the terms of any modification, do not continue to use the services and immediately notify us in writing of your termination of this Agreement in the manner described in the section below.
1. THE SERVICE.
1.1 Right to use.
We hereby grant you the right to use the Service during the Term strictly in accordance with the terms and condition of this Agreement.
We agree to provide you those levels of support in connection with your use of the Service set forth in, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the Technical Support Guide which will be made available to you by Dynamix.
1.3 Number Transfer on Service Termination.
For those Services that require this function, Local Number Portability (LNP) refers to the order from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requiring all telecom providers to allow customers to retain their phone numbers when changing service providers, as long as the customer stays within the same local calling zone. Instead of disconnecting service numbers, you may choose to port your number(s) “out” to another carrier. You initiate this by contacting a new service provider to initiate a “port-in”. The new service provider will then contact us with a “port- out” request. We will follow industry-sanctioned procedures to fulfill the port out request if: (a) such new service provider is able to accept such number; and (b) your account is completely current, including payment for all charges and applicable Termination Fees. Submitting a Port-out request to another service provider 60 days prior to the agreement end date will accelerate an early termination, described in Article 5.2, and all outstanding invoices and unbilled invoices during the contract term will be immediately due and payable.
1.4 Ownership and Risk of Loss.
